The first full-length trailer for The Disaster Artist has finally arrived. Let’s check it out:
God damn, this looks great. With the initial announcement of the cast being filled with typical funny people such as James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, and Alison Brie, I feared The Disaster Artist was turning into a full blown comedy. This trailer has seriously alleviated those concerns. Of course, this looks absolutely hilarious. With the film documenting the production of one of the most endearingly insane movies ever made, how could it not be? But this looks like there’s heart at the center of the whole thing, with a tinge of bittersweetness. And maybe a vampire.
This trailer also gave us a much better look at Franco’s interpretation Tommy Wiseau. The initial teaser left me hesitant about Franco’s performance, but he looks, acts, and sounds exactly like Wiseau here.
The film recently screened at Toronto International Film Festival, and by almost all accounts it is excellent. If you haven’t watched The Room yet you most definitely should before this thing comes out. This writer thinks it can only add to the experience of watching The Disaster Artist. The film opens on December 1st. Get to it.
